Every evening for the past 100 plus years this statue has waved goodbye to the sun. One day next week it will wave goodbye to the last day of 2020, and a few hours a later a new day, and a new year will dawn behind it.  The statue has said goodbye to a lot of years and a lot of good and bad times over the century or so it has stood watch. At some point it will wave goodbye to all this mess for the last time. Then, just like the new year's sun will shine on it next week, a new and better day will warm its back, and ours.

Oregon Badlands, late July:

Fark user imageView Full Size


After a miserable decade living in the south, I decided I couldn't take it any more... So I did what any reasonable person would do, I bought a rooftop tent, quit my job, and hit the road. No plan beyond getting back home to the NW, no safety net.

Once I left, it was like I couldn't put enough miles between me and everything I was leaving behind. I did about 10k miles in the two months leading up to this picture. I stayed a different place every night, just so I could keep putting more distance between me and everything I was leaving behind. Until I got to the Oregon Badlands. There, I finally stopped running.

I came and went from this spot a few times over the next couple months... Along the way I stumbled into two little outdoor raves entirely by accident, hauled ass across Black Rock and Alvord Deserts, saw comets and mountain lions and wildfires, sheared an axle on my car, discovered a meth lab, the usual... But what I remember more than anything was this sunset, when I finally stopped, caught my breath, and -- for the first time in a long time -- felt like everything was going to be okay.

/I found this little guy sitting in the basement of a vacant house a few weeks ago; cold and slowly drying out, with no possible escape from the basement. I brought him out into the sun to warm up, and left him to hop into a pond when he was ready. In the middle December a dying little frog, got another chance. I hope he made it. Its not much, but I like to think he did.

/must be my inner sap coming out.

To me, a rainbow symbolizes hope for recovery after a storm has passed. Year 2020 was definitely a storm.

After working with Southern Baptist hypocrisy for 20 years I was turned off of religion. This image started to appear through my office window last fall. Due to the broken blind and angle of the sun, I got this projected for several days. Others in the building took this as a sign.

Keytar Bear. Central Square, Cambridge, Ma. December 2020. I've heard of him before but have never seen him until now. Kind of cool to just see unusual nice randomness in a year full of bad.

Here's to hoping for mashed potato loving alien intervention if 2021 gets weird
